The UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 is heading to England this July and will feature some of the best talent in women’s football at some of the best stadiums in England, with each nation taking part vying for one of the biggest prizes in the women’s game.
Holders Netherlands will be hoping to continue their fine form in international tournament knock out stages after reaching the final of the World Cup in 2020 – beaten 2-0 in the final by USA – and the likes of Northern Ireland have reached the finals for the first time, so you don’t want to miss it.
This guide will take you through all the ways you can watch the UEFA women’s Euros so you’re primed and ready for when the group stage kicks off on 6 July.
UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 Preview
UEFA have really stepped up to the plate when it comes to delivering women’s football to the masses as popularity has emerged around the globe in recent years. The UEFA Women’s Champions League recently broke a record for the biggest attendance for a women’s football match, when Barcelona’s Camp Nou hosted the Champions League first leg between FC Barcelona Women and Wolfsburg – with a mammoth crowd of 91,648 in attendance.
With the women’s games attracting more attention and fanfare and the quality of the game improving year on year, the UEFA Women’s Championship in the UK this summer should be an excellent sporting spectacle, offering the best women’s football for you to view.
Which teams will compete at the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022?
A total of 16 teams were originally scheduled to compete this year in the top national competition for women’s football in Europe, though UEFA have since expelled Russia from the competition. That means, at the time of writing, only 15 nations are confirmed to take part in the summer football event and have been drawn in the following groups for the group stage:
The action will take place at 10 stadiums across the UK, with most stadiums belonging to a top club in England such as Manchester United’s Old Trafford and Man City’s Etihad Stadium, with the addition of the Leigh Sports Village, home of Manchester United Women’s Football Club . The final will take place at the national team’s home of Wembley Stadium in front of 90,000 fans.
